Firefox hopes to one-up IE with fast graphics

,----[ Quote ]
| But the day of Microsoft's demo, Mozilla 
| evangelist Chris Blizzard had this to 
| tweet: "Interesting that we're doing 
| Direct2D support in Firefox as well--I'll 
| bet we'll ship it first."


Exploiting the portable edition of Firefox

,----[ Quote ]
| For the absolute best security, I 
| previously suggested booting a copy of 
| Linux off a USB flash drive, SD memory 
| card or CD, and running Firefox from 
| within Linux. This remains, in my opinion, 
| the safest option. But, the hassle factor 
| is much higher than simply running another 
| copy of Firefox from within Windows. Your 
| choice.


Better Copy/Paste with Firefox

,----[ Quote ]
| QuoteURLText and Copy Plain Text are not 
| the most advanced Firefox extensions out 
| there, but they sure can save you a lot of 
| time if you do a lot of copying and 
| pasting from Web pages to other documents. 
| As any Firefox user knows, the copy 
| operation grabs not only the selected text 
| fragment but also all the formatting. In 
| most cases, however, all you want is the 
| text itself without all the formatting 
| silliness. Sure, most applications let you 
| strip the pasted text of formatting, but 
| this just adds one more unnecessary step



Benchmarks Show Firefox 3.6 Fastest Version Yet

,----[ Quote ]
| Although Mozilla's Firefox 3.6 is still in
| beta, the CRN Test Center reviewers wanted
| to take a look at it because we measure the
| progress of a browser in development by
| doing a series of benchmark tests against
| each alpha, beta and final versions to
| determine whether there are performance
| improvements with each release. For
| instance, when we tested Firefox 3.6 Alpha
| 1, we were pretty impressed with the
| benchmark results.


Mozilla releases second Firefox 3.6 beta

,----[ Quote ]
| Mozilla, racing to release Firefox 3.6
| before the end of the year, has released a
| second beta of the open-source browser for
| Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
